Ph.D Theses

Gregory Allen (The University of Texas at Austin), “Computational Process Networks: A Model and Framework for High-Throughput Signal Processing” Advisor: Prof. Brian L. Evans (2011)

Hamood-ur Rehman (University of Texas at Austin), "Artifact Assessment and Generation of Video Halftones". Advisor: Prof. Brian L. Evans (Dec. 2010)

Alexander Olshevsky (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), " Efficient information aggregation strategies for distributed control and signal processing", Advisor: Prof. John N. Tsitsiklis (2010)

Yongle Wu (University of Maryland), "Game-Theoretic Strategies for Dynamic Behavior in Cognitive Radio Networks" Advisor: Prof. K. J. Ray Liu (2010)

Brännmark, Lars-Johan (Uppsala University), “Robust Sound Field Control for Audio Reproduction: A Polynomial Approach to Discrete-Time Acoustic Modeling and Filter Design” Advisor: Prof. Ahlén, Anders(2011)

This thesis is concerned with the design and analysis of robust discrete-time filters for audio equalization and sound field control in real reverberant environments. Inspired by methods in polynomial control theory, a unified framework for acoustic modeling and filter design is developed.

Wen Dong (MIT, Media Laboratory),  “Modeling the Structure of Collective Intelligence” Advisors: Alex (Sandy) Pentland (2010)

Zhefeng Li (University of Delaware), “Space-time/frequency Coded MIMO and Cooperative OFDM Systems”, Advisor: Prof. Xia, Xiang-Gen (2010)

Mahsa Talebpourazad (University of British Columbia), "3D-TV Content Generation and Multi-View Video Coding" (2010). Advisor: Rabab Ward (2010).

May-chen Kuo (University of Southern California), “Mocap Data Compression: Algorithms and Performance Evaluation” Advisor: C.-C. Jay Kuo (2010)

The richness of a motion capture (mocap) database is essential to motion synthesis applications, especially in the entertainment industry. The constraints on the size of the mocap collection to be used and the need for efficient database management drive the need for an effective compression scheme.

John M. O' Toole (University of Queensland), “Discrete Quadratic Time-frequency Distributions: Definition, Computation, and a Newborn Electroencephalogram Application”, Primary Advisor: Dr. Paul Colditz, Associated Advisors:  Dr. Mostefa Mesbah and Dr. Boualem Boashash (2009)
